When you post something on the web, can you be sure it stays

there? Enter a hidden shadow industry of digital cleaning where the Internet

rids itself of what it doesn't like - violence, pornography and political content.

Who is controlling what we see and what we think? Thousands of Filipino content

moderators are actively deciding every day what actually gets seen on the web,

so that our timelines are pleasant or at least non-violent? This fact was

hidden until recently. The documentary filmmakers infiltrate this shadow

industry.

Theodore is a lonely man in the final stages of his divorce. When he's not working as a letter writer, his down time is spent playing video games and occasionally hanging out with friends. He decides to purchase the new OS1, which is advertised as the world's first artificially intelligent operating system. Theodore quickly finds himself drawn in with Samantha, the voice behind his OS1. As they start spending time together they grow closer and closer and eventually find themselves in love. As an OS, Samantha has powerful intelligence that she uses to help Theodore in ways others hadn't, but how does she help him deal with his inner conflict of being in love with an OS?

What if the murder of tomorrow could be prevented today?

 

To predict a future crime scene and to prevent a murder seems like something from a sci-fi movie. It is, but it’s also real – and happening right now. To make this possible, powerful computers and omnipresent cameras capture data from all sources, which is then evaluated and nalyzed with the help of algorithms. At the same time, we, the citizens are transformed into arriers of recorded data – our every move, message and purchase tracked and mapped. Ratings of how likely we are to commit a crime are attached to our personae. Computers spit out lists of tomorrow´s criminals. But what if it´s you who ends up on this list? What if the data is wrong? Or biased?? How can we be guilty of things we haven’t done? 

 

PRE-CRIME travels to Chicago, London, Paris, Berlin, Munich and other places to show predictive policing techniques in action, to investigate their opportunities and dangers and to meet people who use them and those who have been victims of them. Who is – and who isn’t – protected by the algorithm? The film exposes the creators of this technology, how they work and who really benefits from their invention.  A science fiction scenario, both fascinating and scary, has arrived in our everyday life. Welcome to the real Minority Report.

 

There will be a debate after the film. The speaker for this debate will be Marc Schuilenburg. He is a philosopher and lawyer. He teaches at the Department of Criminal Law and Criminology at VU University Amsterdam. His latest book is called "Hysterie". A culture diagnosis, containing a large chapter on predictive policing.

How can big data and cutting edge technology be incorporated in the creation and appreciation of art? The Next Rembrandt is a project that connects Rembrandt’s genius with today’s knowledge. The end result is not just a unique painting that is both of the 17th and the 21st century. It allows insights into the long-gone mind of a legendary artist, and also poses questions about the possibilities and limitations of art and technology today.

From Tibet to Syria, this documentary shows the role of the web in the worldwide fight for democracy and freedom.

The film's original premise was to address the life of Julian Assange, documenting scenes showing "motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle", focusing on the risks taken by persons involved in the well-known Wikileaks website, the most notable risk being taken by Assange himself. The documentary begins in 2010, addressing Assange's worldwide persecution by the United States, and the extreme judicial measures he came to face on the part of the Swedish judicial authorities, which sought his extradition from the U.K. in 2012.
